I think those colors are fantastic! I had no idea that it was so lovely there! BTW, do you know the song “Telephone Call from Istanbul” by Tom Waits? 🙂

The evil works! Keeps the evil cooties away. I love all your loot-especially the water. I’ve really enjoyed your travel journal.
Thanks for posting.

Impressive packing to get these home safely. Did you bring an extra suitcase or ship them or stuff them into your bringalong bags?

Ah your house will be safe from all evil now. But did you bring water home???

Like the evil eye protection doo-hickey for the door , the water, the pillow covers, and the rug but AB_SO_LUTELY!! am ga-ga over that beautiful plate.
Quite a haul you’ve made. And such diverse selections.
Love being a fly on the wall you have erected of your trips.

Beautiful. beautiful! I have been wanting to travel to Istanbul someday and your stories and videos have made me even more eager.
Thanks to you, I can enjoy being an armchair traveler for now!

Fantastic loot. I have a bunch of similar kilim pillows on my kilim covered sofa (hmmm, is it a sofa? a bed converted into a sitting opportunity. a settee? whatever), my husband brought a couple of them home from a job in Turkey, that look just like your rug.
